Crochet scarf with flowers

I really cant write patterns..and my crochet is not that great but here is a pattern for a scarf i made. I crocheted a scarf in a simple stitch, i believe it was a treble all the way, you can make this as long as you like. I made 5 flowers but again its up to you.
If you dont want to make the scarf you can buy it HERE



Crochet flowers (got this off my aunt, but as Ii said, i crochet my own way but i think this is as close as it gets!)

Abbreviations:
ch = chain; dc = double crochet; lp = loop; rep = repeat; sc = single crochet; ss = slip stitch;tr = treble crochet.


Round 1:Ch5,, join into a circle, work 15sc into circle. Ss into first ch.
Round 2: Ch4, * skip 1sc, 1dc into next sc, ch1, rep from * 6 times more. Join with a ss into the 3rd of the first 4ch. 
Round 3: Work 1dc, 1tr, 1dc, 1sc, * into next ch loop, work 1sc, 1dc, 1tr, 1dc, 1sc, rep from * into each ch loop, making 8 petals. Join with a ss into first ch.
Round 4 Working behind the petals made in the 3rd round, make ss between 2 petals, ch 4, * 1sc between next 2 petals, ch3, rep from * to end. The ch loops made lie behind the petals of the previous row. Join with a ss into first ch.
Round 5 Make the next row of petals by working 1sc, 1dc, 2tr, 1dc, 1sc into each ch loop. Join with a ss into first sc.
I hope this makes sense!

Easy Cowl Pattern - knit today

This is an easy to make cowl pattern. The instructions may not be that easy as i never really write down patterns but this was a request.


So here goes.
You will need a multiple of 9 sts plus 4. Depending on the yarn and needles you are using, cast on a number of stitches for the required height. I did not use circular needles so you have to cast on the number you need for the height of the scarf and knit as many rows as you  need to get the width (circumference) you would like.

I found that if you used larger needles than the yarn requires you will get a softer cowl. Dont use very think yarn, I would not go much thicker than double knitting

I used USA number 10 needles and using double knitting, I cast on 58 sts. (6 x 9 =54 + 4 =58) That made the cowl about 12" high. (its squashy so it will gather down)You will have to figure out how many stitches you need according to yarn and needles used, but basically it is a multiple of 9 plus 4.

Start with a false cast on, that means 1st row in spare yarn which will be removed later so you can graft the two sides together. (if you dont want to do this, and cast on and off neatly then so so and sew the ends together)
You can also knit this in the round but there you are on your own as I hate knitting on circular needles. You would need to cast on enough stitches for the circumference (always a multiple of 9 +4) and then knit the height instead. Also, the odd rows (1 & 3) will be K not P

But I digress...
Pattern:
row 1: purl
row 2: k3 * yo (yarn over) K2 SKP (slip stitch, knit stitch, pass slip stitch over)K2tog  K2, YO, K1.YO K1
repeat from * to end. K1.
row 3: purl
row 4: K2 *YO, K2, SKP, K2 together, K2, YO K1.YO K1 Repeat from * to end. K2


Lets Try again:
Row 1 and 3 Purl.
Row 2: K3 * yo, K2, skp,(slip stitch, k next stitch and pass slipped stitch over) k2tog, k2, yo, k1. repeat from * and end K1
Row 4: K2 *yo, k2, skp, K2tog, K2, yo, K1 Repeat from * and end K2

 (apologies, i am not very good at writing patterns so i knitted this again and fixed the errors.)

That is all the pattern!
Knit it as wide as you want it to be, it can be an infinity style, where you can wrap it twice round your neck, or a neck warmer. It's up to you! I believe mine was about 25-30"

When you have reached the required size, bind off using a 3 needle method (picking up the stitches on the other side after you have removed the scrap cast on yarn and casting them off together so you join the two ends)
If you have used a regular cast on, thgen cast off and neatly join the two sides.

If you want, you can work it in another pattern using just rows 1 and 2. Its fun experimenting!

The cowl is also available for purchase or you can order on in your choice of color here:

Happy knitting - and remember I welcome all comments - Hopefully this is not too confusing!
